DNC staffer was reportedly killed by "would be" robber on July 10 in Northwest DC believed to be the Wikileaks DNC memo leaker. Was his killing a robbery...or a political whack?
When the officers arrived, Rich was still breathing. He had two bullet holes in his back. The police noticed his hands and face were bruised. Yet, whomever shot him did not take his billfold or anything else. The police believed it was a botched robbery. The reason the robbery was not completed, the police concluded, was because the they were on the scene so quickly. I don't think so. I think the reason he was killed was found, in part, on his Linked-In page. He said: "I have an enormous interest in public service, and working towards making the world a better place." A possible second part of that reasoning is that the girl friend said she heard sounds from her boyfriend's end of the call and mentioned it to Rich, who reportedly told her "...not to worry about it." His statement suggests, at least to me, that he may have known his assailant or, for some other reason, he didn't initially feel threatened, suggesting whomever approached him may have either been in uniform or, perhaps, was carrying a badge.
Rich, a native of Omaha, Nebraska, died in a Washington, DC hospital a short time later. He worked for the Democratic National Committee. He graduated from Creighton University in Omaha. He previously worked on Democratic election campaigns in Nebraska and for the US Census Bureau. Rich's death was a five-minute read in the Washington Post. The tragic victim of a robbery gone bad.
The story moved from Local News in the Washington Post on July 10 to the front page on Tues., August 9, 2016 when Wikileaks founder Julius Assange implied on Dutch TV that the victim may have been killed because he was a Wikileaks whistleblower. As Assange posted his own $20,000 reward on top of the reward DC police offered for information leading to the conviction of Rich's killer, Assange did not name Rich as the whistleblower who provided Wikileaks with reams of emails between DNC officials on the collusion between Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz [D-FL], Chairperson of the Democratic National Committee and the leadership of the Clinton Campaign. Assange implied it by saying the July 10 murder was an example of the risk leaker's take. "Whistleblowers," Assange said, "go through significant efforts to get us material and often very significant risk."
When the interviewer on the Dutch TV network, Nieuswsuur, suggested that the murder may have resulted from a robbery gone bad, Assange rebuked that hypothesis saying "...There's no finding...I'm suggesting that our sources take risks..." When asked if he was saying that Rich leaked the DNC emails, Assange ended the interview by saying that Wikileaks never reveals its sources.
What is evident from the emails is that the Clintons and Wasserman-Schultz determined on their own how Democratic delegates would be awarded so that, regardless if she won or lost the primaries, Hillary Clinton would always win the lion's share of the delegates. With regular delegates and super delegates the rules were written to guarantee Hillary would win the nomination on July 28. DNC internal memos revealed that Wasserman-Schultz was working with Clinton to smear Sen. Bernie Sanders [I-VT] (running as a Democrat), using racist tactics against Sanders in States viewed as "redneck" by the DNC and the Clinton Campaign to keep the union "rednecks" from voting for Sanders over Clinton.
On Monday, July 25 (the first day of the Democratic National Convention), Wikileaks dropped 19,252 emails showing collusion between the Clinton Campaign, Wasserman-Schultz and the DNC—which forced Wasserman-Schultz to resign her position with the DNC. Immediately, Hillary Clinton hired her as the honorary Chairperson of her campaign. In the meantime, on July 22, the last day of the GOP convention, my Internet hook-up went dark, leaving me with no eyes on the Internet until July 29—the day after the Democratic Convention ended. I missed all of the initial Seth Rich story—which really didn't unfold until Aug. 9 when Assange offered a $20,000 reward (on top of the $25,000 offered by the DC police) for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Rich's killer.
Fox News logically jumped to the realistic conclusion that Seth Rich was most likely the whistleblower who provided the DNC emails to Wikileaks because Assange never offered to kick-in a $20,000 reward for any other Clinton Campaign, Clinton Foundation or DNC officials who conveniently died from a freak accident, suicide or a robbery-gone-bad where Rich's last words to his girl friend seem to suggest Rich either knew his killer, or was not intimidated by him. Rich was just one more unfortunate political newbie in a long line of experienced Clinton political hacks who were fraught to discover that the only benefits they ever received from working in the Clinton universe were death benefits.
US citizens lose protection of a good Bush-43 law, caused by bad Bush-43 law on creating, then repealing, country-of-origin of meat labels
Roberts, and anyone who voted to hide the country of origin of foreign products needs to be removed from office, and a federal law needs to be enacted to take away any federal pension from politicians caught doing quid pro quos for industrialists or their lobbyists . Let the crooked US meat peddlers who are selling US meat products to foreign countries or profiting from selling Chinese or Thai beef in the United States, put Roberts on their corporate pension plans—or strip them of their US citizenship and let them join the Parliaments of the countries for whom they are actually working by screwing the American people and calling it "representative government."
Then there's Sen. Debbie Stabenow [D-MI] who wants to make sure Canadian beef producers can sell their cattle to Americans who have more than enough beef to feed the American people. Wonder what Canadian lobbyists are feeding her campaign re-election fund?. Stabenow doesn't run for reelection until 2018, so you'll likely forget that the sewer-raised tilapia from China that puts you or your children in the hospital with e-coli will likely be due to the fact that not only do the meat packers but the poultry and fish mongers don't have to tell you what disease-infested swamp hole their products came from.
The House version of the meat label repeal, HR2393, passed on a vote of 300 ayes and 131 nays, was proffered as The Country of Origin Labeling Amendments Act of 2015 by Rep, K. Michael Conway [R-TX[ (who should be forced to eat tamales and tortillas for the rest of his life) and Jim Costas [D-CA] who probably already does. Fortunately, both of them are up for reelection in November. Both need to be defeated in their primaries. The American people need to make it clear to every municipal, county, State or federal legislator, governor and President, they are elected BY THE PEOPLE even though they are financed with dirty money from the princes of industry, and the barons of banking and business who always work against the people and for the big-bucks donors who bribe them. And, the American people need to be prepared to recall and remove any thief they inadvertently elect to public office. And when they charge the politician with malfeasance, they also need to charge the fat cat with the big bucks and the lobbyist who doles out the political graft for the giving and taking of bribes.
Prior to 1924 there was no standard, mandatory oath of allegiance. The oral oaths recited at the naturalization ceremonies were independently adapted from the 1795, 1870 or 1906 naturalization laws, with each court (federal or State) or the government bureaucrat administering the oath of allegiance could create theri own verbiage. On May 26, 1924 the 68th Congress enacted the Immigration Act of 1924, Public Law 68-139 43 Stat 153 which standardized and mandated the oath of allegiance. Subsequently, Barack Obama's fiat changes in immigration law (now attributed to the US Citizenship and Immigration Service [USCIS]), would be an invalid exercise of presidential power, but just one among many that Obama would exercise with impunity..
